When I knew I was visiting Dublin, I knew straight away I would have to see Phoenix Park, and the zoo inside it. Covering a space of nearly seven miles, it is one of the largest parks in Europe and a wonderful place to go for a walk. The weather might not have been perfect, but it was still a delight to go for such a long and scenic walk. There’s a cycle lane and plenty of space for walking your dog, but most people I saw were just alone and enjoying the walk for themselves.
I’ve been to Paris plenty of times. It’s a gorgeous city, filled with style, flair and romance. I haven’t seen anywhere near enough of other parts of France though, and so I really looked forward to visiting Brittany. Located in in the north west part of the country, Brittany has population of around 4.5 million and has a strong Celtic history.
I took this when out for a walk in the grounds of Villa Borghese, just outside the Galleria Borghese. The gardens are wonderfully spacious and leafy, and one of the few places you can go for a run in the city.
